Caring for your daughter, building her future


Ms Ingrid O’Shea has been appointed as our new HSCL Co-ordinator.

“My name is Ingrid O’ Shea and I have been a teacher in North Presentation Secondary School since 2006. I am also a past pupil. This year I have taken on the role of Home School Community Links Coordinator (HSCL). The HSCL scheme is designed to work with and support the adults in our student’s lives to help improve educational outcomes for them.

What does that mean exactly?

It means that, as the HSCL coordinator, my job is to support adults in many different ways such as:


  • Visiting parents/guardians at home
  • Ringing parents/guardians for a chat about school life
  • Helping parents/guardians support their children in transition they move from 6th class to secondary school or from a new school.
  • Working with the Educational Welfare Officer and the School Completion Programme to promote Attendance, Participation and Retention in school
  • Providing classes and courses for parents
  • Linking in with the Local Education Committee, Child and Family Support Networks and other local services.

If I don’t have all the answers to your questions and/or concerns about school life I’ll certainly do my best to point you in the right direction. I am very privileged to take on this role and I look forward to working with you. You can contact me on (021) 4303330 or (086) 138 4323″
